At Utrecht University every study year is divided into 4 periods of 10 weeks. Most of the CPS-courses are full time, 15 credits, courses and have an estimated study load of at least 40 hours a week. The credits are standard credits according to the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS). Other courses, in particular elective courses, are scheduled parallel in 'timeslots' and have an estimated study load of 20 hours a week (7.5 credits).
